    Just returned from a two week back country hunting and camping trip to Idaho. The Bounty 4500 was comfortable and spacious enough to carry gear to hunt for days at a time in the back country. The pack was comfortable carrying more than my 50 year old frame was ready for... LOL. My brother in law had a pack from a different big name company that was constantly digging in his lower back. I had no such problems at all with my SJK. I do have a couple of recommendations and one equipment failure note: Please consider adding front pockets to the kidney belt area in the front. I added some Condor brand in camel color that look and ride nicely. Also, the secondary pack is so small it's hardly of use for the apparent purpose. I stored meals in mine and left it suspended over a tree limb at camp to prevent bear incursions while carrying the lightly loaded main pack during day hunts. EQUIPMENT FAILURE NOTE: The two aluminium supports in the internal frame system both wore through the bottom of their sewn in material holding slots during use. UPDATE: Unfortunately, some of the packs were incorrectly assembled at the factory. The aluminum supports were inserted behind rather than inside of the re-enforcing sleeve where they belonged. I have received a new pack with a prepaid fedex return label to send back the old one for inspection. SlumberJack is taking care of their customers!! Upgraded from 4 to 5 stars!!

    Phenomenal pack! We have always used badlands in the past, and everyone seems to be using Kifaru, but for the money you can’t beat this! Comfortable regardless what you’re packing, pockets designed for specific items that most hunters carry, more straps and loops than you can imagine, and one thing that no other company thinks of is a spot for a pistol holster. We are brutal on our equipment, and this pack has held up so far, even with 50+ lbs of gear, and a 50lb sand bag. Only downside is that you can get carried away with the amount of room in this pack, never have had that problem! The little pack is an awesome idea, but could be a bit bigger to fit standard size tripods and spotting scopes. All in all we love this pack and can’t imagine our back country trips without it!

    This pack is downright awesome. It provides total versatility, packability, durability and comfort. Versatility? It is basically three packs in one. Pack it to capacity to get to camp. Pull off the front pack for a day pack. Score a big kill?Take advantage of the frame system for a comfortable pack out. Packability? Meat. Gear. Weapons. Ammo. Plenty of room for it all. The weapons carrier is well balanced on the center of the pack.. also GLAD to see that someone finally made a pack that is holster compatible (paddle at the hip). Durability & Comfort? Well, lets just be clear.. it does not stand up to intense heat! I strapped mine to my hitch rack and one of the straps was melted by the exhaust pipe.. oops. A few stitches later, and we were ready to roll. Aside from that, I have had great luck with the pack standing up to sharp rocks, cactus, and whatever else mother nature has thrown at us. I am beyond impressed with Slumberjack packs. If you're on the fence.. relax. You have nothing to worry about!

    The pack is simple in its design, comfortable and you can get more in it than you would want to carry! On a recent wolf hunt, this pack performed great, the waist belt adjusted to me quickly and rode comfortably over several days. The detachable smaller pack is ideal for small items. I needed to make a water run down the mountain, I detached the small pack and used it to haul the water bottles instead of my large pack. Great pack for the price!

    The way that this pack is constructed makes it perfect for the hunter or outdoor enthusiast who wants a multi-function pack. On my first trip with it I carried over 45 lbs of gear over rough terrain with no comfort issues. It can be used for overnighters, multi-day pack trips, or carrying a large load, whether that's an elk cape and rack or large equipment, such as a hard case with sensitive gear. The kidney pads are well placed and the support system is very comfortable. The detachable day pack makes the Bounty 4500 ideal for making base camp and then going out with only the supplies you need and not having to bring another pack to accomplish that. Normally I don't like packs with camo patterns (I left that behind long ago) but the Highlander pattern is not obnoxious and doesn't make me look too 'tacticool.'

    Highly impressed with the fit, finish and layout of this pack. It is a jack of all trades if you are hiking in for a spike camp. The adjustability is welcome, as I have a torso on the short side. I humped this thing with 60+ lbs and it never bit into me. The field pack is a complete entity, just pop it off and hit the trail. A few niggles--I'd love to see the ammo loops on this as with the Carbine, and the access to the side pockets is a little restricted when all loaded up, but still useful and manageable. My Vortex bipod tucked in there just fine, and never did I feel it was at risk for popping out unawares. For the money, you are hard pressed to find an equal in versatility, ergonomics, and the Kryptek pattern is just the cherry on top.

    The Bounty was a great addition to my elk hunt this year. It fit everything I needed for a spike camp and worked great as a daypack in-between. The trophy hauling system looks like it will function great, too bad I didn't bag an elk to try it first hand! My only gripe is that it needs easily accessible water bottle pockets but that's easily mendable with some other accessories. I'd definitely recommend this pack.

    I was very pleased while using the Bounty on a 5 day backpacking elk hunt. The frame and suspension handled the 60# packing in very well and the system was versatile enough to convert to a day pack for hunting. The quality of construction was obvious and the longer the trip lasted the more impressed I was. After my experience with the Bounty my Eberlestock pack is now up for sale. 5 stars.
